Last week one lucky UK ticket-holder welcomed in the new year spectacularly by winning the EuroMillions jackpot of nearly £40million. The EuroMillions draw tonight (Tuesday, January 5) is worth an estimated £15million, and the draw is expected to take place later tonight. Express.co.uk will update this page when the EuroMillions winning lottery numbers are announced.

One EuroMillions ticket matched the five regular numbers and two lucky stars on Friday, January 1 – winning one lucky person £39,774,466.40.

The winning numbers were 16, 28, 32, 44 and 48, and the Lucky Stars were 01 and 09.

Camelot’s Andy Carter, senior winners’ adviser at the National Lottery, said: “What a start to 2021 for EuroMillions players.

“Not only did the giant jackpot get won in the UK, but a further 10 lucky players banked £1m in the Millionaire Maker event.

“In all, over 900,000 UK players won a prize in the New Year’s Day draw.

“It is fantastic news that the jackpot winning lucky ticket-holder has now claimed this enormous prize.

“We will now focus on supporting the ticket-holder through the process.”

No one won the EuroMillions Hotpicks jackpot in Friday’s draw, which uses the same numbers as the main draw.

However one lucky winner won the Thunderball top prize of £500,000.

How to play EuroMillions

To play EuroMillions, players must pick five numbers from 1-50, and two Lucky Stars from 1-12.

Alternatively, players can try a Lucky Dip if they want to play EuroMillions with randomly selected numbers.

Players can choose to play on a Tuesday or Friday, or both days, and also the number of weeks they want to play EuroMillions for.
